independence well we grew out of being control of our own resources from responsibility for the problems we face and of country going to be able to stand up and speak to the issues that matter to us. taking charge of hourman we can through that we have a voice abroad and how would it work economically and socially well scott from some rich country we have the largest oil and gas producer in the european union we not only have a bone chilling terms of oil and gas but you know a boat in terms of the noodles geography for the first time in our history is probably to advantage so we've got great potential and the tragedy in scotland's never been heard bad things are it's hope much better thing food be and we can translate normally that scuppered oil but the people two times for the record of the hunger society we should be able to do that but over sources for more were used by thoughts of the smash organized labor and indeed by twenty poor to create an illegal war in iraq is there any idea in your mind that this might start some kind
12:33 pm
of snowball effect whereby the well south of the northern irish then want to secede from the union as well that's a matter for the welsh and the northern irish for you stand for election the scots and be represented the nation of scotland it's for others to decide what they need choose to do scotland's in a distinctly unique position we obviously have friendships with other parties elsewhere but we can only comment and speak for the people of scotland do you identify with other independents movements in europe for example the flare and i'm also thinking of less peaceful groups like the basques and the northern irish are you. we worried that independence in scotland could be an inspiration for those more violent groups well the scottish national party in the whole mish issue of nationalism scotland has always been peaceful there has no truck with violence or disorder in any shape or form and so we do have friendships our own do you know equally little party of the left of center and we want to make scotland a better or a fear of police we want to make sure that those who help them was contribute the
12:34 pm
most so we loot with envy and indeed friendship to scandinavia and to political parties not just national parties but parties of the say to the left of the globe what about being an inspiration for those last minutes but again it's for the people of those countries to say what we want to do we would never support can do in violence in any shape or form clearly if other countries wish to pursue an agenda then they'll get a great deal of sympathy from us as others do but certainly violence would not be totally today near in shape or form and we've been elected to monday it's one is to pursue a clean for independent scotland and the right for the referendum equally we relate to the government to make scotland the police and we seek to do that by driving a record of your forward to making your country theatre a good inner city for wealthier and healthier it's got and it's gained its independence how do you see your relationship with the year in union changing do you not think that you would miss it in significant. well at all countries
12:35 pm
are interdependent new nation no matter how large is entirely independent in the world in which we live whether it's dealing with global warming pollution dealing with a market economy what all interlinked. is for the you are represented in the institutions of power it's only nation states are represented in the european union the only nation states that are represented in the united nations countries such as the concern and cyprus most are small of them scots and they all have representation of the european union. they can do to mark a fundamental to scotland even for example when they don't really have any relevance today and so we have to be a nation state could be represented so that we can argue and speak for what matters for scotland the european union and so we can also go to the united nations and stand up for what's right and also make clear which wars are not in her name do you think that you would automatically get to see the u.n. and representation and. well all international law sure was that we would.
12:36 pm
see dealt with in terms of putin union representation for germany once the form of the east germany became part of the new generally historical precedent and about i always go so we thank you for recognizing that the people of scotland wish to become an independent nation it will be recognised by governments so to the barber and the road in the world court marcos and court is being unfair so far as that political parties in scotland would refusing to give the people of scotland the right to decide their own destiny in a referendum or the outcome will be for the people of scotland to say that there was something manifestly wrong the parties appear to have a referendum in the voting system but were not prepared to go the people of scotland to decide their constitutional future you mentioned the referendum on the alternative fate that's now been down into that as a waste of time are you worried that the same might happen to a referendum on scottish independence or don't think you'll be seen as the i think
12:37 pm
when the referendum comes it will be seized by the people of scotland we don't take anything for granted but we think and we hope and expect that we will win not. be pulled through my lifetime that there would never be a scottish parliament know that as i was told that there would never be a scottish national party of government yes that is i know there's a scottish national party government that's a majority government in the scottish parliament people said that could never come a vote because it devised a voting system to try and make sure there would never be a majority they said. there's been a poll in the sun news. paper that says that higher percentage of english people want scotland to have its independence than the scottish people want scotland to have its independence what the states that want to welcome a. nation in it's own right it's a production i have many from when friends who either live in england or english the relationship between scotland england would improve the scots and being in payment nation of scots would lose perhaps some of the chip and assure the does
12:38 pm
sometimes come out to me have to address side some of the problems that we face and scots in turn people have to think of their own problems with alcohol abuse appearing as an all these difficulties the only people who can solve a lot of the scots themselves and ireland for which the deed which got from england will have a good relationship as frames recognizing of differences but as i see it's the british think it's artificial entity not scotland and england it's called unstaged yes and i should say that that's not a given the polls show a minority want independence in scotland at the moment do you expect any problems from westminster after all they're not legally obliged to let scotland's go even if scots do very. well i think it's been cleared by every prime minister never a major political figure so so the border would have the people of scotland vote for independence then they would receive it so i don't believe all these markets have been. harping about world cup and a referendum will to police nobody will stand against it that's may be quite clear
12:39 pm
by the prime minister so to the border people be nice to see and suggest that we will not referendum we'll see they said never going into this parliament can they thought we'd never get a majority government but from the vote yes as a people for independence and i ignored the government's not simplest most of the board around the world will welcome us into the family of nations as happened with other countries with on my right all in gas from the north sea it's worth around about twenty one billion dollars a year to the u.k. treasury do you really think that they're going to just let that get without any kind of fight. yes so then the deal we keep getting full subsidized one of the reasons that some things people in scotland are skeptical about independence is that we're told we're too poor to we can't manage and you've just produced the figures showing the value of the sort of choice. to kingdom treasury we recognise that these are not just for negotiation but they're not us that are fundamentally right to make a country and people better scotland than norway discovered oil seen in some areas
12:40 pm
of scotland permanent and industrial desert has transformed that society and its economy it has billions in the bank critters we've seen those we still go to the cells weapons of mass destruction and the illegal wars so it's time for us to of ocean of revenues the precise amount of stuff to be restored from what quote but it's of oil and gas and it's a renewable energy you keep mentioning illegal wars and i'm assuming that you're talking about iraq but has london rush towards war in libya pushed further towards demanding independence no i think because of different situation the water in iraq was illegal it was predicated on a lie by twenty players and it just made the world the less safe police millions guide to the world is institutions sort of fundamental such as you lay to the missions and the mind going to see it to be the one of the less safe place clearly there are significant problems in north africa has to be protected per think it's
12:41 pm
important that underpins other countries shouldn't here today commissions ninety but if you make the nation to take civilian life there's not even a commission for regime change you claim sole responsibility for releasing al mcgraw he was convicted of the lockerbie bombing even what's happened in libya now do you regret that decision and you're durant i stand by that decision that was a decision before when there was a scotsman and healing to the values and beliefs that we have here it wasn't an easy decision but i believe in. was the correct decision as justice minister how do you feel about the apparent impetus for the international community to rush into libya what do you think that that's about the status of international law but i think at the end of the day we have to protect life because people being brutalized by colonel gadhafi or by anybody else it's your obligation of the world to meet sure that we do it the los from the size and other things to come about so action
12:42 pm
has to be taken but these things we have to live the way some form of iraq and collectively common humanity will get from the late and inspiration to teeth to the on mondays so they. consent i hope we are martyrs are hating but we support action taken to preserve life simpy says berg is hosting an international conference on legal issues and president medvedev has put the application of the rule of law at the center of his agenda what do you think they should be concentrating on as justice minister at that conference well i think what we have to do is to try and restore some belief and scots i'm still not represented on the international stage and until then you know we allow others to do their part we will speak up for what we believe supports into the interests of scotland and sports right and proper we don't see it as a seed to go great to other countries i think that's a matter that hopefully this will produce some good because there are difficulties we do have to meet sure that life is preserved not simply in north africa but in
12:43 pm
africa and indeed elsewhere so we wish president well we hope that matters will be what toad i don't think it's for myself or any member of the scottish government to . direct we simply hope that matters will or code and we will be when we will be able to give represented as an independent nation and to clear a part this won't be sought by one country or the united states all russia every country has to play its part and we look forward to us part we need only be a small nation but we have a nation. with the problems history and wish to put it over attributing to me the part of the police kenny macaskill thank you very much thank you.
